700 after market firing pin spring trouble

I replaced my firing pin and spring and the new spring was bending enough in a few places that it was dragging in my bolt and causing some vertical stringing. Sooo I ordered another spring, repaced it with the handy little Sinclair tool and this one is also bending/dragging in my bolt and causing vertical stringing. Am I doing something wrong? I went back to the factory pin/spring combo and no bending or dragging. Has anyone else had this trouble with after market springs?

That would be my guess, The J lock firepin is smaller dia. and thus lets the spring twist around the pin.

The action is a "C" series but I will double check the part number on the after market firing pin and see if it is a J- lock. Thanks fellas!!!
